The beauty of BodyTite: Banish stubborn fat and tighten saggy skin without invasive surgery

 The desire to look and feel our best is ageless. However, with time, we may find it harder to retain our firm, sculpted, well-defined physique, even with a healthy diet and regular exercise. Some highly localized fat deposits are incredibly stubborn; they resist all efforts to trim and tone, be it physical activity or dieting. Fortunately, Kirwan Plastic Surgery of Norwalk, Connecticut, can reduce even the most stubborn fat – without invasive surgery. 

Get to know BodyTite

Our world-renowned board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Laurence Kirwan, knows that not everyone desires or is a good candidate for surgery. Dr. Kirwan, in turn, provides a vast menu of nonsurgical and minimally invasive procedures and therapies. BodyTite is among this diverse category of precision, customizable treatments associated with minimal risks, downtime, and recovery. 

This system by aesthetics giant InMode is designed to remove “exercise-resistant” fat pockets while simultaneously recontouring or reshaping the body. BodyTite also lives up to its name by tightening the overlying skin. It leverages a revolutionary technology; Radio Frequency Assisted Lipotightening (RFAL™), to safely, gently, and conservatively facilitate advanced body contouring. Due to the minimally invasive nature of this treatment, patients do not have to be “put under” with general anesthesia. This in-office procedure is well-tolerated with more minimal anesthesia. We are happy to discuss ways to ensure your comfort and a pleasant experience before treatment.

 The “magic” and process behind BodyTite

RFAL™ is delivered precisely to targeted fatty areas via a tiny incision. The technology triggers a process whereby heat is generated to melt away the fat gently. The damaged fat cells are then removed. As needed, Dr. Kirwan may recommend that BodyTite be combined with liposuction to take fat reduction to the next level. BodyTite may precede liposuction; when fat is pre-melted, its removal is less traumatic. This approach is associated with a better-tolerated procedure. Swelling is also minimized. It is considered a more appealing and comfortable alternative to traditional liposuction alone.

In addition to removing fatty tissue, BodyTite also safely and precisely targets saggy tissue. The controlled heat that is generated combines with RF energy to tighten and strengthen the firming collagen protein in the dermis or deeper skin layer. 

Due to the built-in features and design of the BodyTite system, patients report minimal discomfort afterward. In fact, little more than Tylenol is typically needed for comfort. Your experience with BodyTite and complementary procedures is, of course, unique. So, Dr. Kirwan and our team at Kirwan Plastic Surgery will work closely with you to support healthy and fast healing after BodyTite. We welcome any questions or concerns that you may have and advise on post-care. Many patients return to their “normal” activities in as little as five days and as long as after-care and follow-up are maintained. 

After the swelling subsides, the results are immediately noticeable! Due to how BodyTite encourages a process of fat removal and collagen remodeling, improvements are gradual and continue for six to nine months.
